All that Camo makes it look more boxy, like the LR4
The Evoque is a mighty stunning car and has an exciting promise of what's ahead. Finally we'll see a successor of the current generation Range Rover instead of yet another facelift.
Is it the camouflage or is the A pillar actually really thin?
The rest of the A-pillars is behind the windshield and front passenger door.
I think with Range Rover you cannot take it out of it's comfort zone . That means more evolutionary than evoque revolutinary. This looks like a stealthy update of the current car but in the shape especially at the rear I see shades of the first Range Rover especially with the dramatic slope at the C-Pillar.

I totally agree with you. It is something that doesn't have much room for change, simply because of tradition and how they have updated the car. Perhaps something so revolutionary would break the line or detract from the consumer. Who knows.
This, based on what I can tell from the camo, looks practically the same.
These luxury trucks are exactly the reason why I want Mercedes to do a true G replacement, a wheels-up, bespoke truck with no interior or exterior similarities to the ML/GL/R group of vehicles. Make a true off-roading S-Class type vehicle, like the RR is and stick a 100K and up price on it.
A bit off topic, but I agree completely. The G-Wagen is one of the most menacing cars on the road and definitely one of the best-looking SUVs. Last time the kill-off was aborted because of fan protest, perhaps the same will happen this time?
I really wish they would put out a new version, maybe just stuffing the W221 interior into the body of the current G, that's all we need.
The Range Rover moving further upmarket, differentiating itself from the Cayenne/X5/M-Class crowd, will only enhance the appeal of this car. Expect this to be the first true luxury SUV, appealing to the likes of S-Class and 7 Series buyers.
Uh oh, a new Rover. This is a huge deal in the automotive industry, as this car is like the "SL of Trucks" in quite a few ways (must be very evolutionary, actually much much more-so than the SL, which hasn't been too evolutionary for some time, and it must remain strong on the market for a very long time).
It looks like the current one, which is good. They need to protect and maintain the blood-line very thickly. I'd love to see elements of Gen-1 again, and I agree with Scott about the stark resemblance of the sweeping C-Pillar.
Hopefully they can finally get the quality right on an RR launch for once, as well.

Some more pics.
Does anyone know how much bigger this will be over it's predecessor? what about a 7 seater option?
It looks so heavy. I can't wait to see it. Hopefully they have addressed the 2 biggest problems - reliability and weight. Make it lightweight and more reliable w/killer engines and interior and you've got a winner. It already holds the top spot for most buyers, but its time to get the quality up to the prestige of the name.
Since I know who owns LR now I'm not excited at all
The aluminium body should sort the weight issue out. I think reliability is the only thing that puts some buyer off...especially those used to German build quality...fingers crossed though it certainly looks promising...
I hope those pics are real deal or at least close to the real deal.

Could it be, but I can already spot one difference in the latest spy pics. The shoulder line is now under the door handles, in the same way than in the Evoque.
I don't think it matters where the money comes from it's still British engineering. The Evoque happened under Tata ownership and look how that turned out
